Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist with a Canadian connection. Beginning her life in the bonds of slavery at a plantation in Maryland, Tubman eventually fled and escaped from slavery to become one of the great heroes of the 19th century. Tubman relied on a secret group of anti-slavery activists who operated the Underground Railroad to gain her freedom. Following her independence, Tubman made it her mission to rescue her family and many others suffering the same plight to safety and freedom, once again utilizing the Underground Railroad. Tubman became the most famous “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, and risked her own life leading many of the people she rescued on dangerous journeys from the US to St. Catherine’s, Ontario. The town was a known safe haven for African Americans fleeing from bondage, was a hub for abolitionist activity, and was the starting and finishing point of many of Tubman’s rescue missions. Known as “Moses” locally and elsewhere, Tubman was a well respected and active member of the St. Catharines community where she lived from 1851 to 1861. Tubman’s fearless fight for freedom didn’t end in St, Catherine’s however, as she went on to help abolitionist John Brown gather men for his attack on Harpers Ferry. Tubman served as an armed scout and spy for the United States Army during the American Civil War. The first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war, she guided the raid at Combahee Ferry, which liberated more than 700 slaves. Heralded as a courageous freedom fighter and military genius, Tubman suffered from epileptic seizures, could not read or write and was never captured. In her later years, Tubman was an activist in the struggle for women’s suffrage. When she died, Tubman was buried with full military honour.
